A 47-year-old man from Amos, Que., is dead after crashing his motorcycle Saturday evening in Messines, Que.

The crash happened just before 6 p.m. ET in Messines, which is about 25 kilometres north of Gracefield, Que., and 110 kilometres north of downtown Ottawa.

Sûreté de Québec Sgt. Gregory Gomez del Prado said a woman in her 60s was driving a vehicle north and was turning left into a restaurant parking lot at 197 Route 105, but she did not see the motorcyclist heading south toward her.

The two vehicles crashed head-on, Gomez del Prado said.

The man was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead. The woman was not injured.

Police are investigating.
